Yes, I saw that and understood it.

But it is inextricably linked to access. I can want to do xyz all I
like, but without a legitimate process for gaining access to xyz, it
doesn't matter. If this process is to be worthwhile doing, it *must*
be actioned.

Yes, and that's exactly how that list was developed. Of course, yes,
that is a subset of the entire evolt community (because it came out
of exactly this discussion among admin people - why is it that
capable, willing people *don't* have access to certain admin tasks),
but take it as a starting place for the wider exercise.

Rather than 'all submissions to X' (and it doesn't matter who X is
btw), can I also suggest those who aren't already on that page add
themselves. That way:
1) It doesn't burden you with extra work while you're moving house
2) No-one can make accusations of central control and filtering.
3) The results are immediately visible

If you feel there are roles required which aren't on that list, add
them! I think your suggested role is a very good one btw.
